For an identical example, see plate 10.SS on page 307 of "Battle Weapons of the American Revolution" by George C. Neumann. These both date circa 1750-1768. This pattern was widely used by British troops during both the French and Indian War and the American Revolution. Both swords have slightly curved blades with single partial top fullers on both sides. One blade stamped on both sides "SH" within a running fox for maker Samuel Harvey. The other sword is stamped on both sides of the blade with a running fox only. Both have heart-shaped brass guards with two outboard branches on right sides. The cast brass grips have a spiraling pattern and round pommel caps with integral capstans. The Samuel Harvey marked sword has an English county name engraved on front of guard "M=CUMBERLAND / 4/4". CONDITION: A) Samuel Harvey marked example, markings are excellent and blade shows some scattered areas of pitting and battle nicks to cutting edge. Hilt retains a mustard patina and shows scattered marks from use. Top branch is cracked where it meets guard and quillon is absent. B) Running fox-marked example has a dark grey patina on blade with scattered light pitting and some nicks to cutting edge. Hilt slightly loose to blade and retains a [pleasing mustard patina. Quillon absent. A very nice lot of two historic swords. DMG
